Peachland's positive murals

Peachland is following in the City of Vernon’s footsteps making waves with its Mural Festival.

In a first for the City of Peachland they are holding a Making Waves Mural Festival on Sept. 2.

The goal of the festival is to create evocative public mural art to add impact and activation to the community while launching an additional visitor attraction.

“The ultimate goal is to create a year-round open-air public art gallery that will provide Peachland residents and visitors with an ever-changing uplifting visual experience; that will delight visitors as they take in the lake view, the beaches, and all the other amenities Peachland provides,” according to Making Waves website.

These murals are designed to depict themes that embody the unique interpretations of the individual artists.

The finished murals will be on display Sept. 2, but one of the murals by artist Sheldon Louis is already completed.

“As we go forward in 2022 and beyond, we will curate art of diverse styles, from abstracts to 3D anamorphic works that will have a positive emotional impact on the viewer, and that will elevate the community,” added the Making Waves website.
